I'm going to be goin to the local junk yard hopefuly tommorrow..... or sometime this week. Would like to look for a few abs control modules while I'm out there. whre is it located and does any one have any pics of one to I have a better idea what to look for? I do have a code 24 on my abs atm and i'm thinkin its a bad module seeing one of the previous owners went ad far as to pull the abs buld out. I'd like to try to get it fixed. Havent had to much time to try to trouble shoot it yet.

The pump and the computer are located below the washer tank on the plastic fender. I think it takes a 10mm to take off. The pump I don't know. It's two nuts. They maybe rusted and they may break.

To help you out I just replaced mine two days ago. Its behind the drivers side headlight assembly. I took the coolant/washer res. With a 11mm. Second was the main connector screw which was a 10 mm.. Just slide the module upward to get it out the bracket. If you dont mind me asking why do you think its your module? My reason was a code 11. But still trying to figure how to reset it

Only reason I think it's the module is that the abs bulb was pulled from the dash. That tells me who ever tried figuring it out before me couldn't repair it, the module is no longer ordersble from ford so I'm figuring that's most likely the reason the bulb was pulled instead of the problem fixed.

Thanks Steve for that pic diagram. I did come across that before, but I thought I was looking at it wrong, I was thinking that the module was located in the cab cause of it's electrical nature.

I have a 1987. My ABS light is on all the time. Does mine have a way to pull codes or is it something different? I have the carb 351w and no ECU.

yo Ewgoetz,
Replace that bulb (#194 in my 96) & try the 4WABS self test

Can you use a ford code reader to check ABS codes? It's one of those OBD1 readers with the prongs sticking out the end of the box.
yo,
Most Code readers can't pull the Codes; only $ types have that ability; but you can get the codes using Steve's info in that Link he provided;
here it is
4WABS Self Test & Test Connector Diagram, Component Locations, DTCs, 93-96; USE THIS PROCESS! "...The 4WABS TEST Connector is red; located at the left-hand side (driver's side) of the engine compartment and marked ANTI-LOCK TEST; Light Flash Technique 1. Note: If 12V test light is not available, the amber ABS warning light also flashes during this test. Locate test connector in the engine compartment and install 12V test light between Pins C and E. 2. With the ignition off, jumper Pin E to B. 3. Turn key to RUN position. 4. Remove jumper between Pins E and B after 5 seconds. 5. Count light flashes of test light or amber ABS warning light..." read more; miesk5 Note; for all Resistance tests, battery needs to be disconnected; remove Negative cable at battery

My abs light stays on all the time, except when I drive through water. When the wheels/brakes get wet abs light goes of but then my brakes work sporadically. Meaning then they stop catching. This can be fun at times and interesting to say the least but when I want to stop I'd like to be able to stop. HELP
